Default Is 2wt too light for bream and small bass?

I was planning on buying a cheaper 2wt and saving the rest of the money for another big purchase I'm looking to make. Recently, I've been thinking about swapping that and just getting a very nice 2wt. Was looking at the Orvis Superfine Touch. The problem is, when I used the live chat feature to ask a few questions about it, the Orvis guy said that the 2wt would be much too light for panfish and the occasional bass. How do you guys feel about this? Is this just a case of the superfine being lighter than most UL's, or would a 2wt not be able to efficiently cast panfish flies or fight panfish/small bass?
